Presumably hunting ghetto yoofs one hopes...

Their smiles say they've already bagged one. "Good Shot!"

Returned last evening from Glorious Twelfth activities and satisfying they were. Rain, wind, peek of sunshine, elevenses, the lot. Excellent shooting over pointers and setters who worked wonderfully in horrid conditions. The next estate over had driven birds but were a half dozen brace below our count. Much better over dogs, much more old fashioned and colorful with the guns in front and the retrievers and pickers and ladies following and the vast moors ahead and behind. As we were in Scotland I deployed the kilt. Nothing like shooting in a kilt for the authentic touch.

SAII ~ I love the new photo. It looks as if Captain Haddock is demanding more whisky in a very forthright manner.

Michael ~ It sounds wonderful. I'm afraid I don't share the enthusiasm for shooting, a result, I think, of having once been used (as a 9 or 10 year old) by my sporting uncle to flush out game birds in rural New York State.

Thanks LBF. Forthright is always best.

Sorry to hear about your early experience with shooting. There's always room for alternative forms of martial skill. Victorian cane fighting or a well placed staff will do in a pinch. Cheers!

What a classless and ignorant statement. Chances are you'll be spineless and not post my comment but just to let you know, I'm not visiting this site again.

Kerry ~ That's fine. You weren't invited in the first place.

"What a classless and ignorant statement" I'm still trying to find it....

I now understand why you're a 'FAILED MERCENARY'

It's not the line of work for a man who doesn't like to shoot or be shot at .......

Anon @ 23:58 ~ I 'failed' because I ran afoul of South African authorities.
